Once more return

And call me from the dark boarding path.

Let me come back

And shower your face with kisses.

You and I have seen

Those who left and never returned.

Call me a thousand times

And let the last time never come.

                                                    (from Shaherezad in Santa Monica)

For this third and final event in Dr. Naficy's residency at the Beach House, we are pleased to present a workshop reading of his new verse drama, directed by John Farmanesh-Bocca. Following the romantic and immigrationary travails of the poet Shahram, his lover Shaherezad, and the new man who comes between them, this lyrical drama set in various Santa Monica sites brings Persian and American sensibilities together. Come experience a new work in its public debut! Special Addition: Live music by renowned Iranian-American cellist Homayoun Khosravi!


Stop by early for Beach House tours by docents from the Santa Monica Conservancy before every evening event, first come, first served. Bring a picnic - Back on the Beach is closed on Monday evenings.
